"Alexis Daria's A Lot Like Adiós is a charming, sexy spitfire of a novel! Romance readers, this is your new favorite book!" --Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of People We Meet on Vacation

The national bestselling author of You Had Me at Hola returns with a seductive second-chance romance about a commitment-phobic Latina and her childhood best friend who has finally returned home.

Hi Mich. It's Gabe.

After burning out in her corporate marketing career, Michelle Amato has built a thriving freelance business as a graphic designer. So what if her love life is nonexistent She's perfectly fine being the black sheep of her marriage-obsessed Puerto Rican-Italian family. Besides, the only guy who ever made her want happily-ever-after disappeared thirteen years ago.

It's been a long time.

Gabriel Aguilar left the Bronx at eighteen to escape his parents' demanding expectations, but it also meant saying goodbye to Michelle, his best friend and longtime crush. Now, he's the successful co-owner of LA's hottest celebrity gym, with an investor who insists on opening a New York City location. It's the last place Gabe wants to go, but when Michelle is unexpectedly brought on board to spearhead the new marketing campaign, everything Gabe's been running from catches up with him.

I've missed you.

Michelle is torn between holding Gabe at arm's length or picking up right where they left off--in her bed. As they work on the campaign, old feelings resurface, and their reunion takes a sexy turn. Facing mounting pressure from their families--who think they're dating--and growing uncertainty about their futures, can they resolve their past mistakes, or is it only a matter of time before Gabe says adiós again

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gabriel Aguilar has had little contact with his parents in the Bronx since a rift with his dad several years before. Now he owns a thriving, high-profile gym in L.A., and an investor wants to open a branch in New York. They end up hiring Michelle, Gabe's best friend from high school, another person who pushed him away after learning that he wanted to leave the neighborhood. Michelle ran a famously successful branding campaign for a similar business, and now works as a freelancer, after the firm she worked for gave the promotion she deserved to her colleague and ex-boyfriend. She wants to show Gabe how much it hurt her when he disappeared and never responded to her emails, but instead they soon realize how much they love each other. When Gabe is confronted by his family, and has to make a career decision, he is forced to decide what he really wants. Sizzling chemistry, realistic family dynamics, humorous fan-fiction flashbacks, and two strong leads make this outstanding second-chance romance one of the best yet by rising romance star Daria (You Had Me at Hola, 2020)."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Daria's sultry, standalone second Primas of Power rom-com (after You Had Me at Hola) offers a delightful take on the friends-to-lovers trope. Childhood best friends Michelle Amato and Gabe Aguilar fell out of touch at age 18 when Gabe fled the Bronx for college in California to escape his overbearing parents. Thirteen years later, Michelle is a freelance graphic designer while Gabe is a physical therapist and co-owner of L.A.'s "5th hottest celebrity gym." With another gym set to open in New York City, the former friends are reunited when Michelle is hired to lead the new location's marketing campaign. One of Michelle's conditions for working with Gabe is that he stay with her while location scouting, bringing him back to his old neighborhood for the first time. In such close proximity, feelings from the past threaten to bubble over and the pair find it increasingly difficult to deny their palpable chemistry--all while fending off their overly invested families, who believe they're dating. Daria keeps the emphasis on the protagonists' personal growth, capturing the intimacy between Michelle and Gabe as they come to better understand who they are as individuals--and who they could be together. The steamy love scenes, vibrant cast, deeply felt emotions, and sense of fun make this a surefire hit. Agent: Sarah Younger, Nancy Yost Literary. (Sept.)"
